New Point-Based System from 01 January 2021

The New Point Based System Launching on 01 January 2021

The New point-based system provides flexibility to the UK immigration system to bring in workers from overseas.

The applicant will need a job offer from the UK and the employer must hold a sponsor licence with the Home Office, pretty much as it is now with the Tier 2 route.

The new system will allow applicants to fill in position from RQF level 3 and above.

The applicants will need to score a minimum of 70 points, however, 50 points are mandatory and rest of the points can be scored in accordance with the table introduced –

The numbers of migrants under this route will be controlled to a specific number every year and the Home Office would observe these from time to time.
